Hmmmm... So I can fly cut at home then... how much is the fly cutting tool?

Is spinning that cutter in the guide going to wear the guide badly?

I know you were anxious to get your engine installed, but you should have put you a cam in while it was out. Would have saved a whole lot of work!

To answer your question, I don't know. I've never used one but I would imagine if you lubed the tool before hand and during the operation there shouldn't be a problem. Plus, looking at how aggressive those teeth are, I wouldn't imagine it takes a whole lot of turns to cut what you need. Probably turn the tool by hand so as not to cut to deep.

You can rent the tool (Isky) and probably old heads too from vendors. I think LGM rents 'em.
I have some spare heads... one of them is real ugly, but still the right shape... the other is in perfect shape... cool.

Well, if you're going to get some cash then by all means pick up some AFR heads!
